Unfortunately there are the obedient livestock like beatrixkiddo that are happy in their enslavement and love big brother. It is because of their belief that war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength that allows the govt to thrive. Their new Neo, (Rand Paul) is just a bone thrown to them to give them false hope that he is the path to freedom.

"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it. . . There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt.
